Thanks sue,its nice to be among people who you can relate to, and be able to support each other because when I was diagnosed with fibro I was just given a leaflet no support from anyone,so it is nice to share good days and bad days with people who understand xx

Hi kimey007

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and I genuinely hope that you find it as useful as I do? It is really wonderful to meet you.

As you mentioned your Fibro Fog, I thought I would paste you a webmd link relating to this, as you may find it useful:

I want to wish you all the best and I genuinely look forward to bumping into you around the forum.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi Kimey - welcome to the site. Yes it is hard to get your head around how unpredictable fibro can be and it is very difficult to explain to other people who do not suffer with the same problem. At least you have at last found a site where everyone is on the same wavelength and can understand any of your concerns. Hope we can give you the support you needx


I totally understand sweetheart!!! If you need help I'm here. This is a terrible disease and as you said so unpredictable. It's like you can't plan anything around it as you live day to day. Hope you are feeling better. I had to go to a pain clinic in order to make my life bearable. xxxx Mitzi


Thankyou so much to everyone for such a warm welcome,really looking forward to my chats xx
